1"bl now 4wd light stuck on

Hey guys so I have been googling and searching forums and cant seem to find anything on what I am looking for... so here is the problem...
I installed a 1" body lift and now my 4wd light is stuck on. This is more annoying than anything cause it goes into 2wd and drives fine but the light stays on. Any suggestions on what may have happened and how to fix this?
thanks for the help,
Mike

My 4WD light was stuck on for about 6 months at one point. I finally got under there and unbolted the CAD cover and cleaned the vacuum shift motor with some brake cleaner. After that it worked fine. That was about 8 years ago.

Another thought is to check all your vacuum lines. You might have pulled something loose when you were doing the body lift.

So I got under an checked the vacuum lines and where the 4 lines plug into the transfer case only one has vacuum and only one of the lines has vacuum at the cad. I was able to switch the one that was working over to the spot of the one that wasn't working on the cad and the 4x4 disengaged and it is now in 2wd. I think this is either pointing to a sensor or cracked line. Any other suggestions?

It might be the vacuum switch that the 4 line plug went to. When you shift to 4wd it routes vacuum to the other line on the axle to disengage the CAD system in the front axle. I wouldn't rule out a cracked vacuum line though.
